Queensland Building Design Awards

Presented by the Building Designer’s Assoc. of Qld

Owen Batchelor and East Coast Building Design have consistently been award winning designers since 2001, achieving numerous awards and accolades since.

2017

  • watch this space – quality entries have been submitted and the drums are rolling………
  • the quality of buildings being designed by building designers gets better every year making it more difficult to win awards, with high quality spread across the industry.

2015

  • Quality is more important than quantity, and rather than just submit anything, I prefer to wait until the right project is ready for submission, and often that takes a while. None of the projects completed in 2013 or 2014 proved to be worthy of submission at that time.
  • 2013 and 2014 have been the toughest years on record in our industry, so i decided to take time off to upgrade my qualifications and extend my license. From 2016 onward we will be licensed to “Open Class” with no restriction on height or building type.
